This is the turnoff from Banff to the # 1 highway to Calgary. Great picture isn't it? They had to build the animals (especially the elk) their own crossing because that was where the natural crossing was and after the highway was built there were far too many accidents.

I understand it didn't take the animals long to learn that this was their "road".

Railroad overpass -- not built as an elk crossing.

I live near there and I have driven through the Banff national park many times. This doesn't look like one, but there are actually many overpasses on the highway made just for animal crossing points. The rest of the highway through the park has 6 foot tall fencing to prevent animals from wandering on to the highway.
